Description Joachim Frieben 2008-07-28 13:19:17 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading to coreutils-6.12-7.fc10, setting LS_COLORS in .cshrc
for the tcsh shell leads to the error message:

   "Unknown colorls variable `ca'."

Shell initalization aborts at this point.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to coreutils-6.12-7.fc10.
2. Open GNOME terminal using tcsh as login shell.
Actual results:
Shell initialization aborts complaining about an unknown colorls
variable `ca'.

Expected results:
Shell is fully initialized and LS_COLORS are applied successfully.

Additional info:
- setting LS_COLORS in .cshrc has been working for the last 10 years ;o)
- applying the 'setenv LS_COLORS ...' command on the command line appears
  to work however.
- according to the RPM changelog, there has been a change related to this:
  "ls: --color now highlights files with capabilities (#449985)".
Comment 1 Christopher Beland 2008-07-31 10:47:30 EDT
I am having the same problem with Fedora 9 after today's update to
coreutils-6.10-28.fc9.i386.  It's preventing me from "su"ing because (root's
shell is set to /bin/tcsh).

I can "source /home/beland/.cshrc" without error.  If I put an "echo" statement
on the first line of that file, I don't see the output when starting an xterm,
leading me to believe it's not a problem with my customizations.
